The Storm Frantic features the same medium RG core design used in the 2 Fast and 2 Furious, which also offers a fairly large flare potential. The difference between these three balls is the cover. By choosing the hybrid R2S coverstock, Storm now has a ball that offers the same strong roll that the Hot line has come to be known for. This brightly colored ball is half reactive solid and half reactive pearl. The orange is the solid half and the green is the pearl. Those with higher rev rates like Cranker will be able to use the Frantic on oily patterns as well as medium patterns.

All three testers found the Frantic to perform best on our medium test pattern. The box finish allowed Stroker to play just outside the oil line while Tweener was just inside of it. Cranker was much deeper than the other testers due
